We came across this collection of gorgeously dark rendered nudes from creative Orlando Sanchez and were immediately attracted to their mysterious, graphic qualities. 'In the midst of July 2010, I arrived in Austin, Texas. I quickly embarked on a journey to figure out what I was going to do with my art. I needed to find out what fascinated and inspired me to create and explore a new body of art. The answer was beauty. The beauty of nature, and the beauty of women. Austin is a stunning city. To that end, I believe that your environment influences your work a great deal. For the past three years, my surroundings allowed me the opportunity to meet wonderful people whom I drew in the nude all whilst discovering the allure of Austin.
This series of work showcases my journey towards capturing the essence of beauty. I could not have done it without the participation of the amazing models and muses that I am so fortunate to work with. Each soul provided their own unique and captivating beauty. I hope you enjoy this series and find it as inspiring as I do.' Orlando Sanchez
